president obama's sworn in on monday. >> and different thing than we saw four years ago but really, today, interesting development with this debt ceiling negotiations. you have got, mark, the republicans at their retreat coming out now saying that they want to have a temporary extension, the white house saying essentially this is that same kick the can move that we have seen from lawmakers in washington, d.c. so when you look at the numbers and how the republicans have an all-time low, the president is higher than he's been in his first term as far as approval. how do we jive that in again with this latest battle? we kind of see where the american people sides with likability and doesn't break the stalemates with house republicans. >> it doesn't but, tamron, i think today's development at the very short term is a significant break. president obama talking about breaking the quote/unquote fever of republicans and looking at what they have proposed is taking the battle away from the debt ceiling and moving it to having the senate duke it out over the budget process. of course, this means we

the can if you will, new year's eve, goes down the road, the pluses, it gives obama a little breathing room, especially as he tries to see what congress wants to do with the package of measures to curb gun violence. maybe this little breathing room can let him launch some work on passing immigration reform. >> let me play what house republican whip kevin mccarthy said a short time ago regarding this latest action. >> the senate has never passed a budget. it is the rule and the law that by april 15th you have to so we're saying is, we will extend the debt limit until the time line where you have a budget. a road map. so you stop digging yourself in the hole that we get out of this problem. >> keith, carry reid issued a statement saying it's reassuring to see republicans beginning to back off the threat to hold our economy hostage. if the house can pass a clean debt ceiling increase and meeting the existing obligations we will be happy to consider it. here we are as i said three days before inauguration and it looks like another fight that the republicans are not prepared to it seems to

offer the last couple of years, it president obama has repeatedly gone to people and said, and the white house to send out the e-mails to people, saying, hey, i need you to call your lawmakers, need you to call your senators and tell them how you feel. they're hearing from special interest groups, but not hearing from you. that's exactly the pitch he made the other day on guns and it's what the group is all about. >> megyn: it makes me wonder whether the people on president obama's e-mail list are the people who are likely to call their republican congressmen in the house and say, go with barack obama on gun control. i mean, there's -- a question how effective it will be in terms of just campaigning on an issue as opposed to campaigning to get enthusiasm to back a candidate at the polls, is there not? >> yeah, absolutely. two things about that, there are going to be a number of red, democratic senators in particular in red states up for reelection in 2014, and how does this group handle that? does this group target them? are those votes in the senate, have to get 60 in order to overcome

nation" following president obama's approval rating, higher than most of his first year. our latest nbc news/"wall street journal" poll shows the approval rating at 52% but despite the number our first read team notes, quote, the president faces an american public that remains in a funk as the president spends a low-key day at the white house, the new official portrait is unveiled. the president is smiling more but there is a lot more gray and inauguration weekend in washington kicks off tonight with pre-inaugural balls. many of those

of representatives. and the answer to that question is really in a painting by grace mcdonnell, a 6-year-old sandy hook victim whose dad gave the president a piece of her artwork >> obama: i think about grace. i think about the life that she lived. and the life that lay ahead of her. and most of all, i think about how when it comes to protecting the most vulnerable among us, we must act now. >> jennifer: for grace, this fight is worth waging. and for her this fight may even be worth losing in the short term anyway. because while the president might be able to squeak out an unsatisfying victory a small and ugly bill riddled with loopholes and signifying nothing, perhaps in this instance, the better course is to wage the big fight to stand strong over banning assault rifles. even when you know you're not going to get the votes in congress because it is a noble cause. because it is better to lose with grace than to win ugly. because every day the extremists froth about saddam hussein and king obama and impeachment over a rational ban on assault rifles. they make the case to most everyday americans th

sort of contradicted the narrative that president obama and joed biden were taking during the the election, crazy uncle joe. >> today after ten years of war we face a hell after lot of threats out in this world. number one, we're continuing to fight terrorism. i mean, yes, we've, you know, we've gone after al-qaeda. yes, we've decimated their leadership. but al-qaeda is still there. they're still a threat. they're a threat in yemen, a threat in somalia, they're a threat as we speak in mali. >> sean: i've got to give him some credit he actually used the term "the war on terrorism" and fighting against the president's desire, the democratic party's desire to gut our defense. >> i think that secretary panetta has been a voice of reason here. he talks about the fact that the sequestration would be devastating if the cuts were allowed to go through. he deals with it day in and day out and he understands that the american people need to realize we still face a threat. i think the president, you know, i would really like to see a president, frankly, as dedicated to disarming al-q
